Making a Big Impact on Earth Day

Earth Day is a holiday that has a special place in our hearts here at Geneverse. First observed on April 22, 1970, Earth Day has gotten millions of people nationwide attending the events at sites such as elementary, secondary schools, universities, as well as a number of community sites across the country.

You might be wondering about practical ways that you can make an impact this Earth Day in observance of this holiday. Better yet, you might adopt one or more of the ways to reduce your own impact on the environment which are discussed below. 

Walk, Ride a Bike, Carpool, or Take Public Transportation to Work

If you’ll be embarking upon your weekly grind, now is the perfect time to walk or bike to work (if you live close enough). If you live farther away from your work, public transportation and carpooling are fantastic ways to cut down on fuel consumption.

Power Down for the Day

It’s probably not practical to power down all electronics and devices during work, but if you don’t work or plan on celebrating Earth Day during your off hours, you might consider cutting off all electronics and devices for the day. Turn your phone on airplane mode and see where the adventure of the day takes you. 

Down the road, you might incorporate this practice once a month or once a week (if you’re feeling ambitious) to make a larger impact.

Plant a Tree

Planting a tree is a great way to make a direct and lasting impact in your own community. You can pretty much plant a tree wherever you like. Get involved locally, perhaps joining in organizations that plant trees in parks, around schools, as well as in urban areas. 

Trees provide shade to buildings and pedestrians. Trees help reduce the heat-island effect and help conserve energy. Make sure that you plant trees in locations and under conditions that are suited to the specific needs of the tree in question.

Support Environmentally-Conscious Local Businesses

You can buy local at farms, markets, and co-ops to support local businesses making a difference in your state or city. Shopping at secondhand stores helps support sustainability by re-using items instead of purchasing new ones.

Conversely, make a concerted effort to avoid supporting businesses that refuse to incorporate green energy and environmentally friendly standards for their brands and businesses.

Go Solar

One fantastic way to energy consumption is converting to solar energy. Home solar energy systems have come an astonishingly long way and are designed to meet most if not all household electricity needs.

If converting to solar seems daunting finance-wise, fear not! State and federal incentives make it less of an upfront expense – credits (federal and/or state), sales and property tax exemptions, and rebates may be available in your location.

Not only this, Geneverse has crafted an energy storage system that holds rank as the most cost-efficient available on the market. Our energy storage systems and solutions will help you reduce your carbon footprint by reducing your reliance on the green, all while making you more energy independent in the process.
